Five Steps to 35...
|These are the prophets over my life... I just had to use this picture as dishevelled as I looked.|
It’s 5 days to 35.
The first day of the second half of the year. It’s been such a ride hasn’t it? 2020 has been a whirlwind with no mercy, snatching wigs and raising skirts. Not at all what many expected it to… but still, I refuse to see it as the worse year ever. I choose to see it as it has been pronounced to be, holding on to my wig and skirt… as distraught as that picture appears… it is indeed a year of endless glory and perfect peace. We choose to rejoice in the face of the storm, we choose to dance in the rain. We can’t change our hope… we can’t be all on God one day, and the next looking for hope somewhere else as we counter the perfect promises with unbelief, because we are looking at the intensity storm.
It’s July. The month of my birth… the seventh month. The month of perfection, completion and rest. God is so deliberate about what He does. He knows why I was born in this month… born into rest, completion and perfection… I’m pretty special, I tell you. God tells me… so better listen. Hahaha that excites me.
Today’s scripture says “So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.” Ezekiel 37:10
Prophesy! What are saying? There’s a breath in the words we speak, a breath that gives life… life that makes dry bones come alive as a great army. The power of words. That’s why I say, choose what you see, and choose what you say about the situations. Speak life, speak victory, speak the mind of God, speak the hope we have in Him… speak the good news to every situation. It is life… the words we speak, a double-edged sword that ought to be used with wisdom… choose life with your words, not death. I choose life. That’s why I choose to see and declare the words from the beginning of the year, when we had no idea of the intensity of the storm coming… It’s my year of perfect peace, As God’s own, I am walking in peace and safety; I am abiding in the shadow of the highest even in the midst of chaos and gross darkness in the world.
Say this with me “I speak life… always. I refuse to speak defeat, fear and doom… I speak life, victory, hope and peace. I am the prophet over my life, and I will prophesy to dry bones and see life restored and a great army rise up from dead situations in my life.”
